CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION Li Introduction This research explored environmental policy as the independent variable (IV) and management as the dependent variable (DV) in Kabale district. This chapter covered the background to the study, the statement of the problem, the general objective of the study, the specific objectives of the study, the research questions, the hypothesis, significance of the study, justification of the study, scope of the study, and operational definitions. 1.2 Background to the study Wetland ecosystems are declining globally. Between 1993 and 2007, the global acreage of wetlands decreased by 6 % (Prigent et al. 2012). In the conterminous U.s., 53 % of wetland acreage has been lost since the early 1900s, with some states (e.g., California, Arkansas, Illinois) experiencing >90 % loss (Mitsch and Gosselink 2000). Continental estimates of degraded wetland acreage do not exist; however, it is reasonable to assume that most remaining wetlands are impacted to some degree by human land use. The reduction in wetland acreage and quality has caused population declines in many wetland-dependent taxa. For example, freshwater turtles and amphibians are the most imperiled vertebrate taxa in the world (Gibbons et al. 2000; Stuart et al. 2004). In the developed world like USA, Wetlands are managed differently for different reasons. In some cases their conservation values may be of high priority, while in others they may be managed to provide important monitoring information. Many landholders are also interested in managing wetlands on their property as part of their production systems, while others might be more interested in rehabilitation (Prigent et al. 2012)
